Ucross Foundation Art Gallery

Located in the historic Big Red Barn, the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery is an integral public component of the Foundation’s creative environment.  The gallery program seeks to engage the interests and values of the local community and visitors from across the country, plays an important role in establishing community relationships, and provides a constantly renewing stream of educational opportunities in an underserved region.

The gallery presents three to four exhibitions each year, typically featuring outstanding contemporary artists of the region, including Ucross Fellows, as well as historical exhibitions that reflect and explore our location’s rich heritage.  Professionally produced brochures connect the gallery with the community, alumni and donors. The Gallery is announced on signs on the nearby Interstates, and is listed in seasonal Wyoming tourist guides as well as books such as Fodor’s Travel Guides. 

You will not want to miss our newest group exhibition: Wildlife, Pattern, and Identity: Contemporary Native American Work From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family FoundationThe show features twenty-one works by ten distinguished Native American artists and will be on view through October 1, 2018. A reception will take place on Saturday, August 25 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm, and is open to the public at no charge. The event will include a reading by acclaimed Native American poet Sherwin Bitsui (Navajo), who will be a writer-in-residence at Ucross. All costs associated with this exhibition have been generously contributed by Jordan Schnitzer and His Family Foundation. 

Wildlife, Pattern and Identity represents three significant themes that have been important in Native American art throughout history and continuing into contemporary work.  The show focuses on printmaking – linocuts, relief prints, archival pigment prints, copperplate etchings and lithographs, as well as a monoprint, monotype, and drypoint print on handmade Japanese paper.
